TAPPI Kraft Pulping Short Course

June 3-6, 2002 Radisson Hotel and Conference Center Green Bay, Wisconsin

This highly interactive course teaches all aspects of kraft pulping. It offers participants the opportunity to apply fundamental kraft pulping knowledge to day-to-day operations, to understand the basic mechanics and chemistry of batch and continuous pulping--both conventional and new modified processes, and to identify problem-solving techniques to achieve pulp quality and uniformity.

Participants will study how kraft pulping occurs in mill practice; interactions of wood, chemicals, heat, and mechanical variables on pulping results; comparison of new methods for kappa number measurement and digester control strategies; how to use mountains of mill process data to find interactions and solve problems; step-by-step analysis of changes in pulp properties during the pulping process; and options for preserving pulp strength potential.

The Kraft Pulping Short Course provides participants with a variety of activities and learning environments. Team exercises using an actual mill problem and typical mill data offer participants an opportunity to learn how other mill people solve problems while picking up tips that might prove valuable in their own mills. In addition, participants will tour the Stora-Enso North America mill in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin.
